    Thanks for this thread it was a big help in deciding what bags to go with. I went with Givi because for me its the best bang for the buck. I'll go with larger Givi bags when I use this bike for more than just commuting. [​IMG]

    I have the V35's on mine. I wish I had bought the E41's instead, but I got such a good deal on the 35's.

    On mine, after traveling with the original Suzuki cases, I decided to build my own's. The top case is the original one. The panniers are made of aluminum and are 60 litres each. I have dropped my bike many times in trails and the panniers never suffered. image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Racks are Givi Monokey. I have a couple of different sizes of Givi cases that I juggle. The Wolfmans are for off-pavement stuff. Duffel is a medium.

    You'll need the Velcro D-ring adapters, but yes, they work very well on the Givi racks.

    Here's a comparison of the width of the stock Suzuki Adventure bags and the plastic Seahorse cases I replaced 'em with, both on the stock racks.

    I love these Wolfman expedition bags. The cheap Walmart dry bag on top matches 'em nicely too!:lol3

    Stock 2013 side cases with some home made carry handle supports...carry handles are inside the lids. Top case is a gift from a fellow rider & I think it's one from JCW.
